A few years ago I enjoyed walking across the parking lot towards the large exotic building, like I’ve come upon something honoring antiquity, then taking in the details of the lobby before and after a film.

If I remember correctly a depiction of a river (the Nile?) was part of the décor of the floor which I would follow to see where it went. Sometimes I’d sit and enjoy the lobby atmosphere for some time after the cinematic show I came to see was over.

This theater and the Muvico company are discussed on pages 122-127 in the book “The Community of Cinema: How Cinema and Spectacle Transformed the American Downtown” by James Forsher, published in 2003. Included are a photo of the lobby, the exterior, a child care center, with excerpts from an interview with Muvico president Hamid Hashemi from October 2001, woven into the text.

The company’s Egyptian style theater in Maryland looks cool too.
